There are many benefits to standardized arrival and departure routes. Noise abatement and terrain avoidance are two of the most prominent.
If Don Drummond has his way, a good many pre-planned routes will soon be popping up at smaller airports around the country. Drummond’s PilotPath is designed to aid the creation – and sharing – of arrival and departure routes.
PilotPath is now available for beta testing at pilot’s own home-base airports. Drummond would like to “get a few pilots (8-10) to test it at their airfield,” and let him know their thoughts.
